  • Black Souliers Christian Dior Block Heel Pumps with High Vamp – US 10, 1960s
    By Christian Dior
    Located in Tucson, AZ
    Vintage shoes, like vintage clothing, reveal how much quality has suffered with the passage of time. As sturdy as tanks, these beauties will take you from board room to dining room and remain as comfortable as slippers thanks to their full support, solid heel and wide toe box. Their Puritanical silhouette is right in step with fashion’s “new modesty.” Leather pump with wide, square toe and chunky block heel; 1” elastic gusset at center vamp. Fully lined in persimmon leather; leather sole and upper. Heels recently re-tapped. material: leather noteworthy: clean and polish with leather conditioner repairs: none condition: very good with enough wear to insole to almost completely remove brand stamp, and sole wear consistent with 5-10 wearings. Original owner placed heel pads beneath insole and heel lining is beginning to lift. Light “pricks” on both vamps consistent with the use of decorative shoe clips and extremely gentle scuffs on toe box of right shoe. measurements: length: 10 ½” from toe to heel, measured along insole width: 3 1/16” measured across widest part of sole vamp height: 3 ¾” heel: 2 1/8” label: Souliers Christian Dior...
